TNA Victory Road in Review: The Loco Latinas Spice Up the Gold!

If only the road to victory were always paved with gold. This past Thursday on Impact, we saw a six way match between The Beautiful People, Angelina Love and Velvet Sky teaming up with Winter to take on Cookie, Sarita and Angelina Pivarnick of the Jersey Shore. Yeah. That’s what I said..however, thankfully, TBP and Winter survived and now, the real Angelina and Winter must team up to defend their coveted TNA Knockouts Tag Team Championships. Who are their opponents, you ask? Well, only the Loco Latinas, Sarita and Rosita of course! I know you’re ready for this and I can say that I’m ready for this. So let’s do this!

The Knockouts action for the evening begins with a backstage segment with The Beautiful People and Winter, interviewed by Christy Hemme. The resident backstage redhead congratulates Velvet Sky on her win over Sarita and maintaining her spot with the company. She also points out that what seems the most surprising is not that win but the fact that Winter actually defended Velvet this past Thursday on Impact. Winter states that her actions last week proved that all she has ever wanted is for all of them to have friends. She says she doesn’t have an issue with Velvet but Velvet has an issue with her. She is just glad that Angelina has finally seen it all too. She is totally jealous of those leggings you’re rocking, Winter. I mean, who wouldn’t be? Velvet can’t believe it but given how Angelina just walked away, I’m wondering if she’s starting to as well… (Apologies for the lack of video).

Out first, with a shimmy salsa and fiery flip are the cousins, Rosita and Sarita. Both are decked out in gold and black, predicting their future perhaps? They move and swivel their hips down to the ring, jumping over the top rope to live it up on the mat. Quick on the draw, Sarita is handed a microphone by SoCal Val and it is time for a little pre-match trash talk. Just a little note, I’m loving Sarita’s hair. She states that tonight is a great night because she and Rosita are walking out of the ring as the Knockout Tag Team Champions. Sarita claims that she doesn’t know about the kinky love triangle going on between TBP and Winter. She says they are not focused and then starts rambling off in spanish. I’m sure I could decipher it if I took the time but my time is precious at this moment. Haha. I’m sure it was really important. Really.

Just know that Sarita says toward the end that she is bringing the titles home for Mexico. Viva La Mexico! I could say something about that but I’ll keep my mouth shut. Out last are the team of Angelina Love and Winter to the theme of TBP(odd huh?), dressed like some sort of sultry ninja and a nightstalker. I have no idea what’s going on with that getup. I’ve learned not to question Winter’s motives. Anyway, Angelina sticks to her nature and LETS THE PIGEONS LOOSE!…while Winter looks like she’s about to hit up an Olivia Newton John music video. Oh lets get physical. Physical!

These four women are definitely about to get physical and I’m curious to see how it works out. Starting things off first are Angelina and little Rosita, curcling each other in the ring before the lockup. Angelina gets the upperhand with a side headlock until Rosita throws in the elbows, pushing A. Love into the ropes. Bring up the rebound with a shoulder block then off to the other side to come back with a flying clothesline. Quick on the taunt, Angelina gives Rosita just enough time to get over to the corner to tag in Sarita, who comes in to a nice hip toss across the ring. She wobbles over to the opposite corner and Winter gets right in her face, causing to back off quick. I’d probably be scared too, Sarita. El Chupacabra!

Turn about she goes into a nice snap suplex from Angelina Love but Sarita’s run in the ring doesn’t last long. Rosita tags in and becomes victim of a drop toe hold while A. Love tags in her partner. Winter pounces into the ring and throws a feisty back elbow into little Rosita, vicious on the attack. A nice backbreaker across the knee and Winter goes for the first pin of the match, getting a two count. Rosita is quick to kick out and crawl to the corner, tagging in Sarita who comes into a flapjack from Winter. A very quick back and forth exchange before Winter lands a nice northern lights suplex bridge, going for another pin but Rosita sweeps in, taking out Winter’s leg to break it up. I think I just got a case of whiplash. I had to blink a few times to keep up with that one.

Winter wrenches Sarita into a nice side headlock and drags her over to the corner, tagging in Angelina. Love comes in with a kick to Sarita’s ribcage but gets taken down and dragged to the other side before momentum can pick up. In an odd attempt at a tag team maneuver, Rosita crawls up on top of Sarita’s shoulders and they set up for a dropping crossbody but instead, little Rosita gets dropped on her face when Angelina rolls out of the way. Sarita gets knocked to the outside and Angelina picks Rosita up, dropping her down with authority. Another pin attempt and another two count gets us yet another tag to Winter. It’s like riding a carousel. They just keep going around and around and around. Let me also point out that the crowd is now starting up a USA chant and I found it funny because Angelina is Canadian, Winter is British and Sarita and Rosita are portrayed as Mexicana. Mhmmm.

Winter is in, giving a quick kick to Rosita and tosses her into the ropes, going for a back heel kick but Rosita trips her up, tagging in Sarita. Across the ring and Sarita rebounds, coming back fast with a dropkick….right to little Rosita. So much for the teamwork effort, huh? Winter takes advantage and wrenches the arm of Sarita, flipping her over harsh. Yet another tag and Angelina Love is back in, keep each other fresh and clean. Still working on that arm, Angelina finally gets thrown across the ring, receiving a punk shot from Rosita from the outside. Tag on the Latina side and Rosita goes for that flipping leg drop but Angelina slides out, coming right back after her. A nice jawbreaker against the shoulder and Angelina goes for another pin attempt. A little slow on the take there with the attempted Sarita breakup. Enter slow motion action here.

The official orders Sarita out as Angelina gets Winter back into the match. A nice firewoman’s carry from Winter on Rosita and Angelina gets in a swift bicycle kick into the temple. Winter in for the pin but Sarita is up to her old cheating ways. She causes a distraction, gets Angelina in trouble and then creeps out, going for one of the tag team titles. Sarita brings in one of the belts but Angelina catches her quick, knocking her out of the ring. However, the belt lays center of gravity and Rosita picks it up, ready to use it against Winter, who has her back turned. The crowd is hyped up and just as soon as the noise becomes louder, Velvet Sky slides into the ring out of nowhere, snatching the belt from Rosita’s grubby hands. Oh no no no, she says and gets out of the ring with the title.

Winter goes in for the roll-up and it looks like she might have it but Sarita stalks her way back in, flipping the two women over which leaves Rosita on top. Oh geez. The referee catches attention and counts the three, which gives the straps of gold new owners. Angelina and Winter cannot believe it and neither can Velvet. She calls Winter a spaz and tells her to chill out but Angelina is more upset than anyone. She doesn’t even look at Velvet as she storms to the backstage area, Winter in tow. Both women are still arguing over what just occured but all I know is….

The winners of this match and NEW TNA Knockouts Tag Team Champions, Sarita and Rosita!

Thoughts: Well, it wasn’t as bad as I thought it was going to be. I say that because Rosita is still so green when it comes to her in-ring ability and it just seems like Sarita has to carry her through matches. I get it. She’s new. She is also very, very tiny. I do have to say though that I was highly impressed with the chemistry that Winter and Angelina have as tag team partners. They make a great team and their dynamic is incredible. I’m hoping that Sarita and Rosita are able to come by some of that chemistry in their run as champions. It’s nice to see Sarita with gold around her waist again. It isn’t the Knockouts title but it comes in a close second. I am curious to see where this leaves TBP but I am sure we will find out soon. Major congratulations to the Loco Latinas on their win.

Match Rating: 3.5/5

    Good match….longer will make it better
    At Lockdown i wanna see Angelina Winter & Mickie Vs Madison Sarita & rosita in winner take all match

  • Piggie James

    I liked the match up until the ending. Obviously the finish sequence was too slow to be believable, which really detracted from the match.

    Winter looked impressive for once in the ring, at first I thought she was being booked strongly, as none of her opponents were getting any offense in, but given how easily she was rolled up at the end by Rosita, put her across as weak.

    I really don’t understand why Winter would be blaming Velvet, since she really didn’t do anything wrong. Overall I like where the dynamic is going, but they’d better have a better explanation come Impact!

    Might write more later if I feel like it/have more time (let alone reading the review lol, which I will do).

  • Melina&Mickie4ever!

    The Ending to me was retarted , Velvet didnt even cost them the match lol
    oh well….Glad to see that Rosarita are the new TNA Tag Knockouts Champions!

    It also looks like they are gonna split Velvet & Angelina , due to having a new titan tron & theme….oh well

  • OvSeven

    i’d like to see velvet accidentally hit Winter with belt when she and Rosita fought off over belt and let sarita to pin her using ropes….

    I dont mind seeing quick title change between Angelina Winter and Rosarita

  • adifferentsame

    Winter blaming Velvet makes sense if the intention is to edge her further from Angelina. Half decent match. X

  • Kaledrina

    once again earl hebner ruined a knockouts match. i like him, but he’s really got to give it up soon.

  • SherriShepherdWWE

    it was a nice match, i agree with the rating, the ending was very awkward and why did they blame Velvet lol, but whatever

    Also, TNA finally added Miss T to there roster, lol she has only been with them a year and they just add her now, :)

  • Mikas

    Terrible match. It started promising but quickly became a trainwreck. Also.. with exception of a clothline and a cheapshot, every single move excuted by Sarita and Rosita was countered by the faces, including the basic moves. This makes Rosarita look very weak and made the match very boring.
    Bad booking as usual, and Earl Hebner needs to retire as soon as possible, because he didnt exactly help this match either.

  • NT86

    Decent match which was ruined by a stupid ending. I thought Angelina worked well as a tag team with Winter. That bicycle kick/Botox Injection into a Samoan Drop was pretty badass! Sarita was solid and Rosita will probably get better more and more.

    Winter’s outfit looked very old school. That one piece bathing suit looks like what women wrestlers of the 80s wore.

    I guess the heat between herself and Velvet will make an interesting storyline, though.

  • Flybytre

    This was a aight match I Liked it an I see Katie Lea is must’ve worked off her ring rust.

    Katie Lea and Angelina Love Had A Great Little Tag Team Move.

    I Don’t see what the big fuss is about Them Kinda Being Mad at Velvet She ain’t really do nothing but try to help, hopefully the will get over it.

  • A.E

    it was an decent match not bad however they should make it longer on the bright side it wasn’t as short as the main event.

    my guess is they st up velvet vs winter or angelina turn on winter.

    my curiosity is when sarita/rosita loose the belts to whon they going to drop it since they lack of teams on tna.

  • Wesley Romano

    Wait are they blaming Velvet for the loss? lol thats NUTZ! =P
    K ricas estan esta Velvet Rosa Sarah y Angelina!!! JEEZUS!! =D

    Sarah y Rosa me recuerdan a Eddie Guerrero y Chavo cuando andaban basilando en Smackdown lol
    No soy mexican pero VIVA LA RAZAAAAAAAA!!!! ;)
    and congrats for winning the belts!
    Oye conyoo tambien Rosa Sarah y Hernandez son un click huh!!
    Man Shelly gotz NOTHIN on Rosa n Sarah hahaha!!

  • unscripted & flawless

    @OvSeven … “i’d like to see velvet accidentally hit Winter with belt when she and Rosita fought off over belt and let sarita to pin her using ropes….
    I dont mind seeing quick title change between Angelina Winter and Rosarita”

    that woulda actually been such a better ending – seriously!

  • Macho Madness

    Aside from the end being a little akward, I liked the match. Good stuff. I liked the tag team wrestling they displayed.

    WOO! New KO tag team champions RoSarita!! ;)

  • Macho Madness

    Sarita killed it on the mic! Haha she is awsome, love her!

    Again, good match. All four ladies did great. I think this is the best match Winter has had in TNA. I’m glad she has finally worked off for the most part what must have been ring rust. Great tag team wrestling.

    This whole Angelina/Velvet/Winter situation is taking a turn for the worst. Winter seems to really be getting into Angelina’s head. C’mon A. Love, open up your eyes! Believe your best friend over that weirdo, jeez! That wasn’t Velvet’s fault at all.

  • melina prez

    The ending was just horrible ….. but the match was goood. Velvet didnt even cost them the match and Wnter and Angelina were like what the hell. That was very bad planning. Angelina and Winter worked soooo well 2gether.

    The part were Winter had sarita on her back/sholders and Angelina kicked Sarita, i thought Angelina kicked Winter at first but no she dident.

    And i c some tension between Sarita and Rosita.

  • DarkJoker

    Velvet Sky vs Winter in the Cage at Lockdown with Angelina Love as the special guest referee. Angelina has to make a choice – either stay with Velvet or go with Winter. The easiest way to book this would be for Angelina Love calls everything down the middle not choosing sides. As the match reaches its Climax Angelina makes her decision. As Velvet or Winter has the other one down for a 3 count Angelina counts 1, 2, then stops, smirks, and gives Winter or Velvet the Double Middle Fingers, attacks them, hits either the Axe Kick or the Jumping Flatliner on that person, and counts the 1-2-3 and leaves with the one she has chosen Winter or Velvet. Of course Angelina could simply pull off a fast count and then she and the one she has choosen double team the victim until the referees / security arrives forcing Angelina / Velvet or Winter to leave. This storyline can now kick into full swing.

  • Envy

    Why have your own video, Angelina? :( Don’t break up the Beautiful People!

  • Macho Madness

    I agree @Envy! Don’t break up the BPs! I feel like they just got back together! Hopefully the end result of all this is Angelina finally opens her eyes and picks velvet and fueds with Winter.

  • Kaledrina

    i love tbp but at this stage i wouldn’t mind too much if they did split permanently.. even before winter came on the scene they barely wrestled together in tag matches or even accompanied each other to the ring =/

  • JoshiTom

    LOL, they are girls! So they should be referred to as LOCAS, not LOCOS.. they ain’t men..

  • April

    @joshitom I am very much aware they are girls, which is why I called them Loco Latinas. Loco by definition means insane.
